because it cut the horses out of the equation. cable cars were a lot more energy efficient. they were very popular in cities all across the united states, including chicago. and they really took over in san francisco because cable cars could climb hills were horses couldn't, opening up development in parts of the city where before there hadn't been any. but cable cars had their drawbacks, too. a cablecar can only go nine miles an hour, as fast as the cable under the street pulling it. cables have a hard time pulling backwards, changing direction, investing in the infrastructure to put the cable in the street is very costly. so you have a lot of upfront costs. if a company wanted to run just one cable car, they had to start up the power house to get the cable car rung through the street. so it energy efficient issues as well. this is an interest street car. that was the new modern, exciting form of transportation. it was very energy efficient. each street car only used enough energy from the wires that it needed. it didn't have to run a power house. people were a little scared of them at fi

sources of energy that can protect the planet and break the grip of our dependence on fossil fuels. this past year was one of the most extreme years for our nation's weather. it was the warmest year on record for the u.s. and droughts, wildfires and floods were far more frequent and far more intense. in fact, nine of the 10 hottest years since 1880 have been in the past decade. in 2012, 9.3 million acres of land across the country burned in wildfires, more than double the annual average and the second highest ever. rainfall was far below the average and it was one of the driest years in memory. droughts, heat waves and wildfires are now the norm rather than the exception. the extreme weather was also a significant drag on our economy. superstorm sandy cost $65 billion. western wildfires cost over $1 billion. and losses from drought cost $30 billion. greenhouse gases emitted as a result of human activity are e biggest drivers of climate change. that is a fact that's accepted by virtually every scientist around the world. we're only beginning to understand the impact of a global temp
important area and energy security. these are all areas where traditionally there have been a sort of fear that emerging and advanced economies were kind of on one side and emerging and developing countries should be treated differently. i think as we have worked around the g20 table and bilaterally it's clearer and clearer that the emerging, the major economies need to talk about these issues on a sort of, not that everybody is the same but on a basis where we recognize that we all have obligations. this came up and you would have seen in today's newspaper in our discussions this week with china there was a recognition that we need to have a joint climate plan and trade, climate and other things. what the major economies do in the emerging world is important for the international system just as with the big industrialized economies do. so another couple of issues that i think have been very important that the g20 has championed. in the energy field in 2009 we called for phasing out of fossil fuel subsidies, wasteful fossil fuel subsidies and everybody could sign up to that but then the ne

and marine energy authority was already off to the races and it was a big question mark about whether that program was going to success and now we looked into this program and said it looks like they are on the verge of success and we decided to model with this model and it was at that time that the shell contract and the programs and what they can really provide as far as renewable energy as far as in-house gas reductions and jobs which is something that we all want to move towards. i am a big believer in this promise of the local build out. icon occur with commissioner campos on the rec's, as many know that's been a little of a hard pill to swallow in increasing to include more recs. to create a successful program and launch the local build out as quickly as possible which really means jobs and energy independence which i think is a key thing because we know our grid is challenged. so i believe this can help and especially our most vulnerable community to have a very reliable power source. so we need to generate additional re -- revenues and the resource mix to get that online as s

who prevailed and what the alternative energy will be that we finally use instead of fossil fuels. will it be corn? please, no. will it be solar. that's what i'm hoping for because solar is a great technology in its infancy. so, really, i think our track record is pretty good. i feel like we have learned a lot from disasters that haven't historically, and that we are weirdly pretty agile at responding. it's just that it isn't within a lifetime. you look back at the last 500 years, there have been really awesome things humans have done and learned from. now we have sciences of incredibly widely accepted theory of dealing with the world. not everywhere but in most places. and that was also quite recent. so, i guess i just -- i feel like humans are doing okay. i think we're muddling through. we're not the greatest. sometimes we're jerks. but on the whole we actually -- that urge to adapt and the urge to survive does percolate out into our politics and social structures, but again, takes a little time. thank you. >> hi. so you mentioned there were communities online where they're basi

[laughter] and he swore he was going to turn his entire company around so that within 20 years or so it would have zero pollution and 100% recycling of the carpets. he would actually rent out the carpets. and he was moving toward that goal with brilliance, keeping his costs lower and lower, and outcompeting his competitors and providing a great place to work because it was such a mission-oriented. and he wrote several books, and you ask
that sits on something like 230 billion barrels of energy. the chinese are trying to assert that its answer their own link that is correct they own it based on 1949 map. the u.s. could help itself a great deal, help itself in the philippines, in vietnam, by saying we intend-- intend clearly to keep the south china sea open to all the players. and this is not simply a chinese territorial water. >> you would like that but not at the point of the united states and china having something that again looks like a new version of a cold war. >> exactly. no, you don't want a destabilizing rival roe in the region. as you say, you want to reassure american allies that america is to the going anywhere without emboldening them. i think we can learn a lesson from obama's china policy. it seems in his first year n particular, he went too far in trying to accommodate chinese interests. and you know, gifts to rise pog we ares are rarely reciprocated, they are just pocketed. he thought the chinese would help him in copenhagen and all these issues. they said we are not interested in that or your fine speeches
question, i took a position with energy after you highlighted it a couple weeks back. they pre-announced last night. i was expecting the stock to get slammed today. it actually went up with the rest of the refinery. do you have any idea why? >> i got to tell you something. first of all, i got cnoocered. i like for the play with an opening. one squawk on the street, i said this is not what i want to see. i thought it would be bad. obviously the stock has been completely depressed. obviously, everyone has been betting against the refiners. the bet did not pay off. we got the bad news. the stock didn't go down. said, you know what, you got to see u.s. oil come down in order for west texas to come down and i don't think you will have that. i don't want to play with valero. it's a good company. i don't want to be there. al in florida. >> caller: jim, boo-yah to you. i want to talk to you about soda stream. many of my friends got this device, they love it. i love it now. i went to visit some of my local retailers. i couldn't believe how passionate the store personnel s. they tell me
who get their energy from goal. natural gas prices are projected to go up 42%. so everything about that climate change speech that he gave from georgetown university is inflationary. you're going to see your costs go up and see the stock prices probably rise from this point forward. charles: ed, the big contrarian, butowsky. i like the color theme this morning, your tie. and the key to obama care, is this the beginning of the end of the president's crowning achievement. and today we have a doctor who sued to stop the lawment is he ready to take a victory lap or what else does he have up his sleeve? right now the seven early movers for the morning. sin zynga, we know over the weekend, that the guy a that came from microsoft. in 2010 he had a meeting and they would have made more than 3.45, some people think that's a positive. so i tag those upgraded to a buy over at goldman sachs and goldman says 93. and barrick gold, i think he likes that, too. and since july of 1992, a lot of people piling in on this on an oversold scheme. and this one a farming construction play, maybe counter in
